George Washington University Video

Audio from her March 17th 2008 speech; Video from her March 25th 1996 visit. During her speech at George Washington University on March 17th 2008, Hillary Clinton described the dangers she faced during her trip to Bosnia, where she was met with immediate sniper fire and forced to race to safety. Video footage of her arrival there in 1996 clearly shows how harrowing this experience was for the former first lady.

A CAREER IN JOURNALISM? A proto-Judith Miller? Swastikas were being scrawled all over George Washington University in Nov. 2007 (about the time AIPAC-connected Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA)was holding her hearings into the Homegrown Terrorism and Violent Radicalization Prevention Act of 2007 - HR 1955). The hateful symbol appeared on fences, a professor's home, dorm doors. Hillel student director at GW, Rob Fishman did his part, fanning the flames of fear & prejudice. The FBI was called in. Big crime. Then the campus cops installed video cameras and lo and behold, the erstwhile victim was caught on tape drawing swastikas on her own door, a self-inflicted wound, a freelance false-flag caper. A "Jewish student practicing false-flag for Mossad career"? or maybe a distinguished career in the new journalism, a la the New York Times' Judith Miller? / yoryevrah snowshoefilms
